Redirector Processes…



  • Using 2.3.2CE with Squid 0.4.22 and SquidGuard 1.14_3 I am getting the following when I look at my Realtime logs under SQUID…

    I also noticed this in my system logs, actually saw it a few hundred times in a row today…

    Any ideas?

    Edit: Checked and suddenly what's in the first screenshot isn't there, then checked the system logs and it appears Squid started a resync???



  • Go to your Squid config - General tab - Show Advanced Options - Integrations.  Increase your rewrite children from the default 16 to something larger like 32 and then Save.  I have no idea about your second error but don't think it has anything to do with the first.



  • Thanks KOM, I didn't know I could make the change that easily, guess I should have looked closer… >.<

    Curiously, what are "Rewrite Children" exactly? Individual processes that are redirecting traffic if needed or?  I am on a small network and am now worried about a much larger network that has this same VM deployed (10 users vs 130 users) and what potential issues they may be having that haven't yet been reported to me.

    That's exactly what it is.  For every URL being processed by squid, it hands it off to a squidGuard child thread.  If you have lots of users and limited children, then your users web experience will be slower as they wait for a thread to be freed.
